Starlink: Capture on video satellite falling to Earth

Users of the social networks on Colombia started uploading videos of a bright object falling through the night sky, at first it was thought to be a meteorite, but later it was revealed to be a Starlink satellite developed and launched by the space company SpaceX.

The satellite that fell to the Land and soared through the skies of Colombia was the Starlink-3123, launched on a mission two weeks ago. The satellite failed to function properly and its descent to our planet was maneuvered from space.

Later, Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, explained in his twitter account that the object captured in the Colombian skies corresponded to that of a satellite Starlink re-entering the atmosphere.

The mission Starlink de SpaceX consists of deploying a huge constellation of satellites to provide high-speed Internet throughout the planet Land.
